Andie was raised in Gaffney, and attended Winthrop University but left college after her second year of study, and moved to Columbia, South Carolina, as she decided to become a model. Before becoming famous and making her film debut, she posed for noted clients, and during the ’80s became the face of L’Oreal advertisements; a representative from Wilhelmina Models noticed her while she was on a trip to Los Angeles, and this eventually led to her signing with Elite Model Management in 1978. This was a good start to building her net worth.
Such circumstances aimed her career primarily to the fashion industry, but as Andie became more successful as a model, she drew more attention by constantly appearing in campaigns and commercials. This led to her film debut in “Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes” (1984). Apart from working privately with coach Harold Guskin, McDowell studied method acting at the Actors Studio and five years later, her acting career was set when director Steven Soderbergh cast her in “Sex, Lies and Videotape” (1989). For this performance she won a Los Angeles Film Critics Association Award for Best Actress, an Independent Spirit Award as well as several other nominations. Her net worth became even bigger in the early 1990s, after her roles in “Groundhog Day” (1993) and “Four Weddings and a Funeral” (1994) which both turned out to be box office successes. In 1996 she was featured in the film by Nora Ephron, “Michael”, alongside John Travolta.
In the following years, Andie dedicated herself to her children, but later decided return in front of the cameras. However, generally she could acquire only small roles, but in 2012 luck smiled upon her again as she appeared in the ABC Family series “Jane by Design”. Adding to her net worth, MacDowell launched her own series on Hallmark Channel a year later.
Some of her latest career activities include her roles in the drama television series “Cedar Cove” since 2013 and comedy-drama film “Magic Mike XXL” (2015), which have also benefited her net worth.
